I wish I were still a child

I wish I were still a child
Someone, turn back time please?
If you could, make it last forever too.

I've always felt I had plenty time ahead,
to tell you how much I loved you,
to thank you for your selfless love,
to talk about my dreams,
to describe my perfect girl,
and to tell you to stop working.
Much of it still remains in me.

You needed my help
I saw it as a waste of time.
Although I always helped,
help came with a sour face.
Only now, do I realise
that it wasn't all about me.

I was rude,
I was selfish,
I assumed,
and became an ass.

I'm sorry mum.
I love you.
I miss you.
You gave me life, I'll make full use of it.
I promise.
